"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Finds for Fridays: August 12 (and other stuff)


Today, I'll be on the road, heading to Livonia (with my awesome friend Peejers and her two daughters) for the FaithWriters' Writing Conference. But I won't be driving.

And if you read my post at The Internet Cafe today, you probably think that is a good thing. Come on over and see what I think of Changing Lanes - and why I need to re-examine my thinking in that area.

And now for "the other stuff."


 


Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following close to 100 blogs and at least scan them as much as I can.  Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you. I hope you'll stop by and read the posts, and maybe even follow the blogs if you aren't already. A win-win, right?

And here they are!

What Does It Mean When an Agent Requests My Manuscript? by Wendy Lawton at Books and Such Literary (pretty self-explanatory, I think!)

Extreme Hupomone by Lori McMath at All You Have To Give (about waiting God's way)

Larry and the poor folk by Billy Coffey at What I Learned Today (about perspective)

On the Brick and Mortar Bookstore Closures- Who Is To Blame? By Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan (another self-explanatory one)

Enjoy these posts - and follow the blogs for MORE wonderful reads. And I hope to see you at the FaithWriters Conference!
